Our 60-credit option is designed to prepare the student to meet the educational requirements for licensure as a Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. The student may also choose to pursue doctoral study after completing the 60-credit option.
Our 36-credit option is the core of the 60-credit option but is not sufficient by itself for licensure. The student who decides to pursue doctoral study with less than a 60-credit master’s degree, or who decides to embark upon an alternative career path, can choose the 36-credit option.
